The comments posted on this site are now being moderated, meaning they will not post instantly and I have to approve all of them. This will cut down on spoilers through the release of the movie as well as all these fake pictures of the monster that keep floating in. If you post a spoiler/review/fake picture of the monster that’s been posted a million times, the comment will never be seen by anyone other than myself and will be deleted. So in other words, don’t even bother posting if it’s possibly a spoiler.

Also the Forums, now have a SPOILER section. If you have a comment that fits into one of those categories I mentioned above, post it there. If you post it outside of the spoiler section on the forum, you will be banned without warning.

I’m trying to keep the site spoiler free for those people that can’t see the movie right when it comes out, or live in another country that has a different release date.

Thanks again for reading the site, in case anyone cares, we’re going to hit 1,000,000 hits today since our creation in July!

Update, as of 8:45 PM Central time, CloverfieldNews.com has had over 1,000,000 visitors!! Thanks guys, never thought it would get this big.

    congratulations on the hits, admin. I…i prepared a poem for the occasion. Ethaan Haas Was right all along, we praised his prophecy and sang his song, our instinct had gone astray, we were proven wrong another day. Admin set up his site, and kept me reading into the night. With fields of clover and slusho zoom, i even went in that dilapidated chatroom. The forums were bustling with tagruato talk, what is cloverfield was plastered in chalk….and admins heart grew three sizes that day. Copyright, Dijjot@dijjot.com

    I’m thinking that either today or tomorrow that there is gonna be some “terrible earthquake” hitting some island in between NY and the Chuai Station…

    Or possibly a lost cruise ship or some kind of boat…

    And also I read awhile back someone saying that they thought it was weird that the military shows up so quickly when the monster attacks and so I’m thinking that they will learn of its existence (if they haven’t already) and will be tracking it and piss it off by shooting at it…

    Now I’m sure everything I just said has probably already been said but if so not on this thread… 😀

    Thanx for making the site ‘spoiler’ free around the date of the movie as not to ruin it for us Brits ( amongst others). It’s gonna be hard to avoid seeing or reading stuff about the movie much as it was when the Sopranos ended and it was still on in England!!

    So here’s to ya dude ( lifts glass of jack n coke in a salute ) ten days to go and a million hits – you’ve come along way baby!

    Rayford…I wonder that too….about the military knowing. If you think about it, it doesn’t take long for tanks to enter the city…..and the troops, and the missiles…the hazmat stations…they know.

    BUT WE DO TOO! This is just freaking BEYOND expectation, and the notion we could be adlibbing this, well, WOW! Think about it! Video after video of Jamie, I recall us all wanting her to EAT the Slusho..and loe and behold! The missing oil station, we decided it MUST be the monster…and loe and behold…we see a soon sinking oil platform SHOOTING into the water….

    I just have a hunch we play a BIG part in the creation of the pre events taking place in the viral marketing. JJ… give em what they want!

    Marythelion;

    Interesting theory, but I don’t think we play as much of a role as you think in writing the movie. When that box came to Jamie saying, “Don’t eat this”, well it was a pretty safe guess that the stupid bimbo was going to do so. Same with the oil rig – way back in the day when Tagruato first appeared people were predicting Chuai was going to be destroyed, simply because it hadn’t been built yet, we knew Tagruato was involved as the “corporate villain” of the movie, and we knew that something had to wake the monster up and piss it off.

    Not a flame, just an observation 🙂 I do think that our negative responses to the old proposed movie title “Monstrous” and our positive responses to “Cloverfield” had a role in fixing the name of the movie. I myself would have liked to have seen the movie called “1-18-08”, because it reminds me of 9-11, and also because in this fictitious world a monster attack like this would have made 9-11 look like a walk in the park.

    Good call on the moderating of posts, admin. Some of them have been quite useless and stupid.

    I read on a previous post but could not find it, someone said that maybe Jamie is the one that explodes, then I think some else said it was Marlene I think that is her name. But at http://www.shocktillyoudrop.com/imageGallery/Cloverfield/
    this has production still that look like the cut out portion of the exploding girl. It show a brunette walking in with the gang and then she is grabed by men in biosuits and you can see blood coming out of her eyes and mouth.

    new letter

    “We have deep sea divers who have taken pictures of what has been causing extreme seizmic activity underneath what used to be the Chuai station.
    Do not be fooled by Tagruato. They know more than what they let on. In fact, my associates and myself have been ordered to be silent during these troubles, but i cannot silence myself. Because the fate of our entire planet lie in the hands of a very few. Because of corporations like Tagruato, who are willing to let us all burn just so they might turn a profit off of it, we are all going to have to make some very rash desicions in the near future. Our own government does not even know what they are up against. Even they are victims of media spin on the current situation. But fortunately, i am not. I cannot share with you the information that i have, but i can tell you where to look for it. Follow the secret ingredient and you will find out what it is that they are all hiding. And once you do, there will be press releases from all of us here, preparing the world for what Tagruato has done to us all. I have seen it. Sonar pictures of it, Actual pictures of it. Like nothing you have ever seen before. We had Deep sea divers go down below the Chuai station and use a high resolution deep sea camera to capture a photo of what was causing these extreme seizmic occurances over the last months, and i can say this much,

    …..I have seen its eyes.

    Please, do not share any of this information with the public yet. They are not ready for it, and to be completely honest, i just value my own life and the life of the people that i love.

    Thank you for respecting that.
    i will be in touch.”

    1 Million hits… Wow. That’s just awesome. Sometimes when you go down the comment list and not see hundreds of different names, it makes you wonder how many people really visit. Anyway – smart move on the comment moderation, as it would be a tragedy for a spoiler to be posted here that concerns a movie as huge as Cloverfield is. Although, Mak, you’re going to have to suffer through all these spoilers and possibly have your movie-going experience ruined. I feel bad for you, man. ;/ Thanks though; you’ve probably saved hundreds of fans from disaster in the coming week!

    When it first goes to the store, right when they yell “get down” a girl with long hair comes in the door and goes to the right of the screen. The second time it goes dark you can see her moving around on the right side of the screen. Then when they say “Theres people still out there” she runs across to the left. And when the lights come back on again you see her come back in again, this time from the left and duck in behind the main guys.

    Hey all just read another spolier. I will not give any details out of repsect for sight and all of you but it was odd. There were 4 surprises in it. 2 at end 2 in middle. The point of movie was slightly different than anything we have heard so far. It explained who died when and how. It did not desrcibe monster and or monsters that much or at all . If this was real it was kinda odd to tell the truth anyway just thought u should all know, that maybe were in for something slightly different than we all think.

    but i think it would be pretty lame if the people who drank slusho or whatever actually turn into the littler creatures…

    Was thinkin bout what mary and a few others said. I agree that I think sumpin will happen today or tomm maybe friday to at least wake up the miltary’s presence of the beastie. But I have a question if they now about it why not fight it in the water we have subs destroyers crusiers bombers sonar. As far as new york response since 9 11 they r always on ready alert in the city. And it takes jets from otis afb here in mass roughly 5 minutes to get to NY or 10 minutes from Vermont. Trust u should here em fly over in morning when scrambled I live 55 miles from there but they come over on way to big city pretty damn low LOL/ as far as hazmat setup prolly wouldn’t take long once event occurs don’t forget it does take place over an 8 hr period. I still wonder what multiple sightings means. And why projext cloverfield although I think tagruato may be using more than one beastie for mutliple attacks over a day. I also belive the timeline we’ve gotten has been accurate but must change somehow since screenings on 15 th and 16th. And just a hunch if a sequel is comin out we may be at this for a long time LOL

    Ryan – It could be possible, since the story is catching up to real time here, that “right now” we could be waging war against it at sea, and its not helping…..I’m sure our government would have seen it on radar by now. That could be the explanation of why troops are so prevalent instantaneously in the movie.

    Reply
  67. SteveMikes

    Marythelion – I’m thinking the same, I mean someone surely must have gone to investigate the area where the Chuai station was destroyed other than TidoWave. The monster must show up somewhere soon though, otherwise what’s it gonna do until it reaches NYC?
    I also had another little thought, you know that email from Tido that some people have received? I know it hasn’t been confirmed real or anything yet, but. . .

    “Sonar pictures of it, Actual pictures of it. Like nothing you have ever seen before.”

    Seeing as we’ve got/seen sonar images of it, anyone think we’ll get an actual picture of it, but like a really blurry picture or something where you can only just make out a large shape or its eyes?
    Just a thought. . .
